How to Pray the Rosary

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
In the Roman Catholic faith, the Rosary is one of the most beautiful, powerful, and sacred prayers. The Rosary is a devotion to God through a devotion to Mary. The Rosary is Scriptural, Christ centered, and the twenty Mysteries reflect the life of Jesus Christ. The Rosary offers hope when life can be unbearable.

Steps

  1. Begin by touching the crucifix and pray The Sign of the Cross.English: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Latin: In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiriti Sancti. Amen.
    • As you say this, with your right hand touch your forehead when you say Father, touch your breastbone when you say Son, touch your left shoulder when you say Holy, and touch your right shoulder when you say Spirit.
  2. Pray The Apostles CreedEnglish: I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, died, and was buried. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father almighty. He shall come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen. Latin: Credo in Deum Patrem omnipotentem, Creatorem caeli et terrae. Et in Iesum Christum, Filium eius unicum, Dominum nostrum, qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto, natus ex Maria Virgine, passus sub Pontio Pilato, crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus, descendit ad inferos, tertia die resurrexit a mortuis, ascendit ad caelos, sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis, inde venturus est iudicare vivos et mortuos. Credo in Spiritum Sanctum, sanctam Ecclesiam catholicam, sanctorum communionem, remissionem peccatorum, carnis resurrectionem, vitam aeternam. Amen.
  3. On the first large rosary bead, pray the Our Father. English: Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. Latin: Pater noster, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
  4. On each of the next three beads, pray a Hail Mary. English: Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. Latin: Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
    • Pray these Hail Marys with the following intentions:
      • For the increase of faith.
      • For the increase of hope.
      • For the increase of love.
  5. On the next large bead, pray Glory Be To the Father. English:Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Latin: Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc et semper et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
  6. Announce the Mystery
    • On the first rosary bead, pray the Our Father.
    • On each of the next ten beads, pray a Hail Mary.
    • On the next large bead, pray a Glory Be To The Father.
    • Pray a Fatima Prayer.English:O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell; lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy. Amen. Latin:Domine Iesu, dimitte nobis debita nostra, salva nos ab igne inferiori, perduc in caelum omnes animas, praesertim eas, quae misericordiae tuae maxime indigent.
  7. Repeat the previous six steps for each of the remaining Mysteries as you work your way around the rosary beads.
  8. Pray a Hail Holy Queen. English: HAIL HOLY QUEEN, mother of mercy; our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us. And after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen. Latin: Salve, Regina, Mater misericordiae; vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve. Ad te clamamus, exules filii Hevae; ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes in hac lacrymarum valle. Eia ergo, advocata nostra, illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte; et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui, nobis post hoc exilium ostende. O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo Maria. Amen.
  9. Pray the Final Prayer (optional). English:O GOD, WHOSE only-begotten Son by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant, we beseech Thee, that by meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
  10. End with the Sign of the Cross.

Tips

  • You do not actually need a Rosary, You can pray the Rosary on your fingers or by using another method of counting.
  • If you are nervous about an upcoming event silently say just a decade in your head as you drive there or wait in line for your turn. It is very relaxing to know that our Blessed Mother and Jesus Christ are there for you.
  • Say a decade for a individual in need. All you need to do is mention the name of the person at the end of the decade. (i.e. Oh Lord I lift up this decade of the rosary for (persons name) because (certain circumstance that calls for prayer.)

Things You'll Need

During 2017, Pray for God's Divine Mercy and Intervention

By Loci B. Lenar

Our Lord Jesus communicated through a locution on December 31, 2015 to "pray for divine favor and mercy"  and to "believe in the power of prayer."  This locution was again affirmed by Jesus on April 25, 2017 and continues to hold true this year.

Pray for Our Lord's divine intervention to answer all your prayers. Pray for Our Lady's Intercession by reciting the Novena for Impossible Requests. Also pray for Saint Jude or Saint Rita to intercede on your behalf. Both saints are invoked for impossible causes or if you're deprived of visible help. Also consider reciting the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, it was composed by St. Faustina in response to visions she had from Jesus Christ, who revealed Himself as the Divine Mercy.  For other prayers that can be used in time of need, please click on the following link: Devotional Prayers

"What is impossible with man is possible with God."  Luke 18:27

In order for prayer to be effective, please forgive those that have sinned against you, no matter how difficult it may seem. Anger toward others creates a barrier in receiving all of God's blessings and grace. Pray to have any anger in your heart replaced with love.

"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”  Mark 11:24-25

Furthermore, many nations have lost their direction by ignoring the gospels and teachings of Christianity. Please join in prayer for God to intervene and bring change to our world. May God open the hearts of people to receive the Holy Spirit.

Pray for the course of history to be changed into a glorious era of peace!

Pray for the fulfillment of Revelation 20:1-3 in order to usher in God's reign of peace and to bring an end to wars, violence, lawlessness and persecution of the faithful. Pray to Our Lady of Fatima for an era of peace to unfold and to protect you from all adversity. Pray for God's protection in your families through the intercession of Saint Michael the Archangel. Pray for God's peace to reign on earth.

"For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him."  ( John 3:17)

Pray to God to intervene in your families and marriages for healing and reconciliation. Pray for an improvement and restoration of your finances. Pray for healing of medical conditions and recovery of health.

Finally, pray to God with an open heart to receive an answer to your prayer and expect His divine assistance. Moreover, it's important to try and be faithful in order for Our Lord to change circumstances into your favor. 

"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."  (Hebrews 4:16)

"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."  (1Thessalonians 5:18)

"May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed."  (Psalm 20:4)

The Miracle Prayer

We recommend reciting The Miracle Prayer, composed by Fr. Peter M. Rookey.  The Lord has gifted the International Compassion Ministry with a grace of healing.  

Invoke the help of Angels


"Make friends with the angels, who, though invisible, are always with you. ... Often invoke them, constantly praise them, and make good use of their help and assistance in all your temporal and spiritual affairs." So encouraged St. Francis de Sales.

Message from Jesus: "Pray for Divine Protection"

Through a spiritual locution Loci B. Lenar received on September 14, 2009, Jesus called for everyone to "pray for divine protection."   The locution from Jesus was a result of Mr. Lenar's visit to the Church of Saint Michael in Netcong, New Jersey. 

In June of 2010, Jesus again reminded Mr. Lenar of the importance of the message.  After prayerful discernment, Mr. Lenar said, "The Lord's plan is to mitigate and extinguish violence throughout the world in order to usher in an era of peace."

Prayer to Mitigate Natural Disasters

The Sacred Heart

God the Father, we join together in prayer and petition heaven for divine intervention to mitigate earthquakes and natural disasters throughout the world.

We invoke the powerful name of Jesus to calm the storms of time and to bring forth a millennium of peace and tranquility.

We pray to the Virgin Mary to interecede on behalf of Humanity for God's hand of mercy to bless us with divine protection.

We ask this and thank thee in the name of Jesus. Amen

I wrote the prayer in 2010 as a result of the earthquake in Haiti.

The Lord inspired me to compose a prayer in order to petition God to mitigate earthquakes and disasters while I was praying for the victims and families of Haiti. 

Please join in by reciting the prayer daily. 

Thank you very much for your thoughtful prayer support.

Angelic Tails: True Stories of Heavenly Canine Companions

This new book is by author Joan Wester Anderson, renown for writing books on angelic visitations and miracles.

The following excerpt is from Loyola Press: Angelic Tails is a collection of down-to-earth true stories from ordinary people who believe that God has graced their lives through heavenly canine companions. Each of the 30 stories challenges readers to reconsider their conception of angels—from the story of a former Air Force colonel whose golden retrievers served as his heavenly helpers in the Colorado wilderness to the account of St. John Bosco, who, for more than 30 years, was protected by an angelic dog as he walked the dangerous city streets. In the end, for all who see through the eyes of faith, this book is evidence that God can use even muddy paws and cold noses to fulfill his purposes in our world.

Miraculous Photo: Shield of Archangel Michael

In August of 2005, a Cross of Light appeared for the first time on Mr. Lenar's backyard fence in Mine Hill, New Jersey, USA.  The same bright cross has subsequently appeared every year from 2005 to 2013 during Lent and Holy Week. Loci Lenar says that Fr. Richard Tartaglia has confirmed this phenonmena by visiting his home several times and photographing the sign in 2012 and 2013. 

Fr. Tartaglia spoke about this sign in his Homily during a prayer service held at St. Mary's Church, Denville, NJ. For more details on this story, please visit the Homepage on this site.

Signs of Archangel Michael

By Loci B. Lenar

While traveling through the town of Netcong, located in Morris County, NJ, I stopped into The Church of St. Michael to say some prayers and snapped photographs of the beautiful display of stained glass windows and statues.  Remarkably, the image of Archangel Michael shows a colorful rainbow that appeared while photographing the statue. To read the inspirational story and to view the photograph, please visit Miraculous Signs of Archangel Michael.  

Where Miracles Happen

Commentary by Loci B. Lenar

Joan Wester Anderson and her updated book, Where Miracles Happen, is inspiring and touched my soul with God's spiritual presence. While reading Part One: Miracles through Prayer, I was captivated in the story, A Light in Her Life. The inspiring story with added illustrations is posted on our blog at the following link: Angels Wonders, and Miracles of Faith.  Visit our Homepage  for my thoughts on Joan's new book.

Honoring the Great Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Inspirational in its artistic design, the awe-inspiring stained glass window can be seen inside of Saint Margaret Catholic Church in Morristown, New Jersey. 

Do you believe in signs and wonders?  If so, then I would suggest reading A Tribute to King.

Pray for World Peace

Please pray daily to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to change the course of history into an era of peace.  Also pray the Holy Rosary and request the Blessed Mother to intercede on behalf of humanity.

During her 1917 apparitions in Fatima, Portugal, Our Lady of Fatima foretold of an era of peace.  For information connecting her message to scripture, please read Revelation 20:1-3,  A Thousand-year Reign of God's Peace.
